Religion endoses hatred.
Why be civil to that?

That's a dishonest and relative statement.

For example, if we take a relative sample size from the last 20 or so posts in this thread, it would appear that atheism endorses bigotry and hatred and Christianity endorses patience and understanding.

You aren't doing much for your cause by acting the way you're acting.

Hardly.

Westboro Baptists Church - "God Hates Fags" and are in everyone's face about it.
Where did they get THAT idea from?
Gods plan?

Religion makes hate.

It's all in your head, because there is no other place it could be.

Religion makes hate.

Westboro Baptist Church consists of about 40 people all from the same family. They do not represent Christians as a whole.

Whatever. It is their religious belief that caused the hate. There is NO question about it.
That is just ONE tiny little piece of evidence to support the statement that religion makes hate.

Was it something other than religion that caused them to become so full of hate for gays?

Jesus Tom, would you give it a rest? KC is not Westboro baptist nor is he any of the other strawman stereotypes you've brought up.

Please. I am not saying KC is from that wacky joint.
I pointed out that religion makes hate.
KC said it was dishonest to say that.
I merely pointed out that is was NOT dishonest to say that and pointed to the nutters at Westboro to support my statement which clearly provides evidence of that.

You said religion makes hate then gave an example of Westboro. This is dishonest as they are a minute portion of Christians... very, very minute.

An honest statement would be, "There are some religious people that breed hate."

Your over generalization is false.

It just feels like a petty excuse to for him to bully.

I didn't like Egor when he was a bully, and I don't like TT when he's a bully.

It does not produce fruitful conversation. Sad

Would you accept "There are religions that make people hate"?
